This week’s Yarmouth Greyhound Homefinders’ featured pet is Impey.

A stunning boy, Impey can be shy with new people and he needs a relaxed home where he can settle into home life at his own pace. Impey loves going for peaceful long walks however he needs an owner who will continue to socialise him with smaller animals.

Impey will be a rewarding companion and once he’s confident, Impey is the most happy and cheeky boy. He has spent a short time in a home and proved to be housetrained and well mannered, settled well with the resident greyhound and most enjoyed being in the great outdoors. For more information, or to meet Impey, contact Homefinding co-ordinator Corinne Douglas, on Homefinders’ local rate call number, 0845 458 3797.
